re: Benson's daughter and grandkids requesting a competency ruling on Tom - 42
[quote]Let me just throw this out there. It's been suggested elsewhere, but it's not necessarily Gayle who influenced this decision on her own. I think you'll find that the brain trust on David Drive (and that sure as hell doesn't mean Rita) and other parts of the Benson operation have been talking ...

re: simmons on monty - 42
The character Bill Simmons plays in the media is basically a fan that knows enough to sound smart but just says stuff for reaction... With a rolodex. It is a conscious schtick to sound like someone "we all know..." but with a rolodex. The actual Bill Simmons is clearly a bright and respected guy ...

[quote]When you or he continue to bash the local and national media for their misinformation or knowledge, you cannot simply blow his "inside information" as simply a post by a fan that no one should even read.

re: McNamara dropping knowledge on Pelicans Report - 42
As I said, why pay attention if he is so wrong? I assumed it was something that people took offense to since he seems to get people into a tizzy. There are people I discount majorly, like Sheridan. I do not regularly discuss his shortcomings, keep a mental catalog of them, or attack him. I just s...

[quote]I just think there are different cases. Most of what you guys do is opinion based and that's fine. My only point is that in this particular scenario, he went past that and stepped into the realm of an insider reporter with sources. When those guys miss, they've opened themselves up to more cr...

re: McNamara dropping knowledge on Pelicans Report - 42
I think you are correct in that there is likely a better way to do it so it comes off in a way that, for whatever reason, is not widely offensive. Also, sometimes stuff just does not go down. Teams, camps do this on purpose. It is difficult at times to sort out why you are being told what you are...

re: McNamara dropping knowledge on Pelicans Report - 42
So, I know a little about this. I heard, I think, what he heard. I also saw some specific things MM did not repeat put out by some reporters. There was a conscious effort by someone to indicate this, I think because that person in the organization believed it. Not excusing anyone, here, but the i...

re: Dell Demps Sucks - 42
I can go either way on a back pg today. I may reevaluate when I see how Pondexter pans out with our perimeter defense. What you are describing, in my mind, also flexibility. Personally, I'd like another initiator, but I see it as a luxury and am not convinced that Evans just likes the ball in...

re: What is the latest construction of The Trade? - 42
[quote]The part that is confusing to me is if Salmons/Russ fetch us a 2nd rd pick and Pondexter, and Rivers nets a 2nd from the Clippers, why not do the original deal and ship Rivers out separately? Is Dell really expecting Salmons to be an easily moved piece later on? Wouldn't 2 2nds be easier to m...

re: Dell Demps Sucks - 42
To me, rearranging the pieces we have so that they fit on the court and off makes us more flexible. If we appear less in need, the price changes. Plus, we used Memphis' tax pressure to upgrade an asset. We can do the same again with modestly priced Pondexter (or him and more) to keep things going. ...
